A Little About Me

Each of us comes to therapy for our own reasons.

Sometimes it’s because we’re on the cusp of something and we long to arrive.

Sometimes it’s because we feel lost, unsure, on unstable ground. It might be that the world around us has crumbled in some way. I will join you, wherever you are, and together we can create and follow the goals that may support your healing, vitality, and resilience.

I became a therapist after years of working in the performing arts in New York City. My work continues to be influenced by my trainings in dance and somatic modalities from that time. I describe my therapy style as warm, direct, and open, all housed within a creative sensibility. Folks I work with hold a variety of intersecting identities and bring a wide variety of concerns, stressors, and challenges into session.

My work is grounded in mindfulness (or non-judgemental awareness) and in collaborative curiosity. Whatever emerges, my job will be to help you more deeply understand yourself, your choices and your relationship with your wider world.

Based on what brings you to therapy we can strategize what may support you right now and what might support you in getting to where you’d like to go. Just like our work together, these goals can evolve alongside any growth and healing that emerges. Therapy doesn’t look one way - it's tailored to your moment.

If, after reading this, you feel like working together might be of support to you, I welcome your reaching out — now or in the future. I offer a brief free phone consultation to see if we feel like a good fit.
